Grab your fitness mats and get ready to do the workout only you can do: body weight training. Well, technically anyone can do it, but no one has your body, with your build, your strengths and weaknesses, and your drive. That’s what makes body weight training so unique. And that’s why having the right exercise mat for the routine is so important.
Exercise and fitness mats are as different from our multi-purpose mats as body weight training is from HIIT. They’re both made to help you achieve your desired level of fitness in the way you want, but boy, are they different beasts. HIIT is still a popular fitness trend, but with tight budgets, body weight training is becoming more and more popular. Sure, you can take classes at a gym, but you can do your entire routine in your home with the right support and padding beneath you. Depending on the space you have available, you can go with our smallest fitness mat at 2′ x 6′ or maybe sneak in the 4′ x 6′ mat. If you have more room to spare and your routine requires a little more space, take a look at the two larger mats. All the mats fold and have a handle so you can store them easily and out of sight when you’re not using them. Wipe them down to keep them clean and you’ll always have your home gym ready when you are.
Our fitness mats go with body weight training like a hand in a glove. You need no machines or additional weights or equipment, so the only thing the fitness mat needs to do is pad and protect. Time for push-ups? You’ve got plenty of support with about 2″ of foam padding beneath your palms. Crunches? No aching spine or tailbone here; soft enough to pad, but supportive enough that you won’t lose control. And because of their outstanding construction, the mats can even handle things requiring movement and resistance, like burpees or any other challenging body weight exercise you can dream up. You won’t have to worry about tears or seams coming undone. These fitness mats will last as long as your routine does.
Choose the best fitness mat for your body weight training and see how far you can go with nothing but your bod and a little padding. You’ll be surprised!
